We stayed for 2 nights on a whistle stop tour of Orkney's main island. Firstly the location is great being up a slight rise from Stromness with a clear view from our room (Hoy View) over the town and the harbour. I cant find fault with anything from the huge bed to the luxurious bathroom to the superb breakfasts. Joy... More

We picked this property for convenience and location for 2 nights of a cycling holiday to take in Skara Brae, Maeshowe and the standing stones at Brodgar and Stenness. The location is indeed great for accessing these sites and it is also situated about 1/2 mile (10 minute walk) up the hill from Stromness with its bars and restaurants. The... More

We have just come home from the most wonderful holiday in Orkney. We spent 10 days at the Burnside Farm B&B where we were warmly welcomed by Joy and Robbie. We were absolutely pampered and had the most delicious breakfasts every day. From the immaculate, lace-trimmed, white cotton sheets, comfortable bed, modern, luxurious hot showers to the porridge made from... More

Great location - away from the town but with views over the harbor. Joy really cares about food and it shows in the wonderful breakfast. Very comfortable and lovely recently done bathrooms. Would have liked to visit the cows.

Very friendly and hospital proprietorship, wonderful atmosphere, clean and up to date, excellent advice about places to visit, fabulous breakfasts, and well located. It is difficult to imagine a better place to stay in Stromness.

Our first visit to Orkney. Quite wonderful. Definitely gold standard from every point of view. Other B&B owners should visit this place to see how it should be done. Excellent breakfasts, professional approach to running a B&B, good advice on what to do on Orkney, view over Stromness harbour like a Norwegian one.

At the top of a hill overlooking Stromness and over to Hoy, the aspect couldn't have been better. This working farmhouse worked its magic on us over the 3 nights spent there. Extremely comfortable bed, deep and soft with quality linen. The en-suite was a revelation - ultra modern, beautifully tasteful with underfloor heating and large, waterfall shower. Not forgetting...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Joy & Robbie were very welcoming & friendly. The room was large & the ensuite was beautiful - very modern. We had breakfast in the conservatory which was cosy & warm & had a great view

We had 3 nights here early season with very mixed weather so it was lovely to come back at the end of each day to such a warm and friendly welcome. Scapa and Hoy rooms have great views over the sea and the nearby island of Hoy. Breakfast was really yummy

I have to say that I selected burnside largely on past reviews and feel compelled to add my own to confirm that this is truly one of the best b&b experiences I have enjoyed. The Rooms are fantastic (I was in the Hoy view) with fantastic ensuites, so many bed covers and blankets, with shortbread that I tried to ration... More
